Adults Share their Faith


Adults can share their faith by participating in these Genesis ministries and missions.


  • Serve in Worship. Genesis is a volunteer-driven community and we need you to make things work! It takes many people in different roles to make a worship service happen. You can serve during in-person worship in the following ways.
    • Altar Guild. The Altar Guild prepares the Worship Room on Saturdays for Sunday worship services. Individuals serve on a rotational basis.

    • Communion Steward. Communion Stewards prepare the bread and juice prior to the service, and serve the communion elements during worship.
